HOWTO: install qBittorrent backports from a repository.

Postby stevepusser » 2017-09-25 20:28

I've been building these for a few months, so decided to put a how-to here. Just upgraded to to 3.3.16 bugfix release. My repo also has a more recent libtorrent-rasterbar "engine" than Debian, so be aware that will also upgrade.

https://software.opensuse.org/download. ... bittorrent

Translating the directions for Stretch:

As root or with sudo:
Code: Select all
echo 'deb https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/stevenpusser:/qbittorrent/Debian_9.0/ /' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/qbittorrent.list


As standard user:

Code: Select all
rm -f Release.key
wget -nv https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:stevenpusser:qbittorrent/Debian_9.0/Release.key -O Release.key


As root or with sudo:

Code: Select all
apt-key add - < Release.key
apt-get update


You can now install or upgrade qbittorrent. Jessie user can follow the same instructions, but will have to change the "9.0" to "8.0".
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: Krita 3.3.2.1, Pale Moon 27.6.0, Audacity 2.2.0, mpv 0.27.0, Corebird 1.7.1, Firefox 57.0, SMPlayer 17.11.2
